WARREN, Vt. – The High Fives nonprofit foundation will host the 7th annual charity golf tournament in Vermont Friday, Aug. 9, 2019. The event, sponsored by GoPro, Vermont North Ski Shop, and Kingsbury Companies, will return to Sugarbush Resort Golf Club, which has been very supportive to the organization in the past.
“Our community in Vermont continues to spread with the opportunity to have the 7th annual High Fives Golf Tournament at Sugarbush this year,” says Vermont native and High Fives CEO Roy Tuscany. “This is so exciting to have this venue hosting this fundraiser for the foundation. Thank you, Sugarbush.”
Following the 9 a.m. registration, the day’s events will kick off a “Break the Glass” competition sponsored by Elevation Physical Therapy where golfers will attempt to shatter a pane of glass by hitting golf balls at it from a challenging distance.
At 11 a.m., the 32 teams will load their carts, make their way to the course, and compete for prizes. Along with best team prizes, throughout the day there are an array of on-course challenges like the Ski Boot Longest Drive, Baseball Bat Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, and the Air Cannon drive. Everyone has a chance to win.
“We’re excited to have this event return to Sugarbush,” said John Bleh, public relations manager at Sugarbush Resort. “The High Fives Fat Ski-a-Thon in the winter is not only one of our most fun events, but it’s for a great cause. It’s great to carry that energy over into the summer.”
After the golf tournament, heavy apps, drinks, and awards will be hosted with dancing to music from DJ Professor.

To add to the fun-filled weekend, Saturday, Aug. 10 the High Fives Foundation will work with Vermont Adaptive to host an adaptive mountain bike group ride. This event will encourage those in the adaptive community to get outside, try something new, and take advantage of the beautiful Vermont backdrop.
